Born on November 27, 1894 to James Ploof and Elizabeth (Lizzie) A. Price in Scranton, PA, they named her Essie. She had two older sisters Florence M. and Edna L. (also known as Edna Hall and later Edna Salomon) as well as one older brother Willis J.

Her mother died approximately five weeks after Essie was born. The two older children were sent to the Harford Soldiers' Orphan Schools of Pennsylvania in August of 1895. Edna was adopted by Harry & Mary Hall (Mary was Elizabeth's sister), while Essie was adopted by John and Lydia Beemer/Beamer and called "Grace", with her middle name remaining Essie.

She married Jacob Bennett in 1916 and had two sons, Robert and Donald. She also died relatively young at 38 years old leaving her two boys. Donald had recently turned 14 at the time of her death, and his brother Robert Justin was just about to turn 16.
